Pokfulam Road Playground to Bonham Rd / High St
We waited till about 7:15 after Suck my Pills said it took about an hour to get from Admiralty
The Briefing by Winkie Tinkie - the Wimps is 2 km longer than the Rambos on the first split. The Rambo and Super Rambo involves some elevation...
So out of the park we went and all missed the first checkback behind the playground. Then up the steps we went to the next check on Pik Shan Path. Breon right, Funio left, the rest straight up the river bed
Up the river bed it was with a false trail to the left which everyone followed and turned the pack inside out Continue up the river bed to another false trail left. Still further up the river bed emerging on the steps up to Hatton Rd near Lugard Rd for the rejoin
Left down Hatton to above the fire station then right turn for the super rambos to start back up the peak again ! WTF
First it was up the steep waterpipe maintenance path, then round the side of the reservoir (which several people missed), then straight up the shiggy to Lugard Left round Lugard to the Peak Tower then down Old Peak Rd Left into Hornsey, along Conduit, down escalator, down Seymour, along Caine and Bonham to High St and up to the 25th floor for showers, sauna and BBQ. All good.
Down-downs by Indy ably dispensed by Suck my Pills
